Rude Boy

I never was a big fan of The Clash, still ain't, so my thoughts on this rock docudrama are mixed at best. It is an interesting slice of history for sure being shot right at the time the whole British punk scene was doing the big crossover. The concert footage included in RUDE BOY is top notch and manages to capture the energy of the period but when it shifts into story mode things become rather forced and stunted. Clash fans swear by RUDE BOY, others feel it's so-so, pick your camp.
